The New Edition, actually the third, was published in 1861 in green cloth decorated in blind with gilt title, author, and publisher on the spine, price 5s. 

The New Edition contained a frontispiece wood engraving based on Brandling's lithograph of Lamorna Cove (fp188) and the vignette in the title page was based on his previous frontispiece The Land's End. Wilkie is now author of "Antonina," "The Woman in White," etc. and the quote of The Winter's Tale is gone. A new preface dated March 1861 claimed the original lithographs had now disappeared. This edition was dedicated to 'The companion of my walk through Cornwall, Henry C. Brandling.'

Chapters II and IX were removed and so was the interesting Appendix which gave the full itinerary of their walking tour. At the end was added 'The Cruise of the Tom-Tit', an account of a sailing trip to the Isles of Scilly, first published in Household Words on 22 December 1855.
